System cycling can be caused by a number of problems.

First: tryusing F8 on startup and go to "Last Known Good Configuration." Youcould also try booting up using a recovery disk and repairing theinstallation. If that doesn't work, there are a few other options:

Trybooting to the Windows XP CD-ROM and go to the recoveryconsole. Oncethere copy the USERINIT.EXE from the CD or from anotherworking PC to the windows system32 directory. Once done, reboot .

Itcould be that RAM has failed or has gotten dirty. Try removing your ramand cleaning it with an electrical cleaner like Truvolt, and thenreplacing it.

Or it could be caused by processoroverheating. Click delete, F1, or F10 when your computer starts to gointo your BIOS and look for PC Health > Temperature (or similar).This should show you the current temperature of the computer andtheemergency shutdown temperature. The emergency shutdown temperatureis asafeguard for when your computer gets too hot it will shut itselfdownto prevent damage.

You can either raise the shutdown temperature or switch it off completely, however be warned that you may damage your computer (or the clients) if the computer gets too hot.Ifthe temperature was causing the reboots then you should considergettingbetter cooling for the computer such as more powerful CPU fansand morecase fans.

Your computer could be set to reboot on a system failure. Try getting in via safe mode by tapping F8 on startup.

Then go to “My Computer” and choose “Properties”. Goto the “Advanced” Tab and under “Startup and Recovery” press the “Settings” button.

Under the “System Failure” box there will be a checkbox saying “Automatically Restart”. Untick this box and click Ok.

Onyour next restart you'll see a blue screen with technical details.Create a new problem report with these. Or you can diagnose with thefollowing list:

Whileyou're in safe mode, you can also use your event veiwer to see if thereare any error messages that explain the reboot. Start> Run, type “eventvwr” -- please share these as well or google them for information and share this.

Youcould also have corrupt boot files or a virus. If you can get into safemode, you might want to consider copying data to an external hard driveand using your manufacturer restore discs. If you can't get into safemode and your data is already backed up, you might also consider this.

Finally, this could also be a power supply problem.

At what point does it reboot? Before or after you see the Windows screen? If you see the splash screen then it reboots, it's a Windows error, very likely, best solution would be to reinstall windows. If it doesn't make it that far, it may be a RAM or m/b error.

Hp dv9208nr with vist sp2, system keeps rebooting, screen stays blank, cant even get to bios


When the files in your system are corrupted, your HP laptop would reboot automatically. When the files which are required to run the Operating System like fonts under Windows FONTS directory are been smashed then your system's Operating System will force your HP Laptops to restart continuously. Thus in such a situation you would have to change the name FONTS in the Windows directory.

The nokia n900 keeps rebooting continuously..cant access any apps are loaded before the reboot happens again..

Try this:

Remove any memory card and sim card.

Check that the back cover is fitted correctly and that the camera shutter is closed.

Try to boot with N900 not connected to charger and see how far it gets.

If it helps, please rate. If it doesn't, write again.

Avic x910bt head unit continues to reboot at splash screen , tried firmware update but since it never actually boots it won't read the SD card , please help

Press the MENU and MAP during power up with the SD fireware 3.02X inserted. The screen will turn white with the words UPDATING, I have all ready updated my unit a year a ago before the rebooting problem. I just go this problem also i evenually got in to boot after eleven cycles of rebooting. My firmware updates were missing for the bluetooth and O/S. I reinstalled both updates and I still have the same problem. Its odd that everyone is getting this problem around the same time. I think its an intermitenground or resistor that is just from aging. Pioneer want a flat rate of $200.00 for all repairs.
